Ep. 52 – Tight Ends Lii

Super Bowl Lii meets Tight Ends Lii! This week we talk Patriots (boo!) and Eagles (yay!). Hubby Frank joins to chat Super Bowl parties (he makes the best dip) and some Australian Open! 52 feels pretty good!

Can’t believe we reached 52 along with the Super Bowl. We’d like to thank our family and coaches. We couldn’t have done it without the team staff and Calgary local craft beer.
